comment Is there a verb that describes speaking with a full mouth?
Not to be confused with "foul mouth" or to be "foul-mouthed" (i.e., to speak in a profane/blasphemous manner)

comment Electronic module or unit?
I doubt that this Q&A is the best place to ask this question, but anyway... A module pertains to an architecture that is modular, i.e., you can plug-out your implementation and plug-in something else. The term unit can often be used interchangeably with module; for instance we say "graphics processing unit" and not "module". Unless there is a well-established way to call it, you can freely use either.

comment How to describe a person with the qualities give in the body of this question?
Nice one, but a "jack-of-all-trades" (master of none) is a person who, indeed, can do a lot of different things, but is not necessarily doing very well in any of these, so this expression is expected to have a negative nuance.

comment “a wottle of bine”, “a can of boot reer” and “holed and sealed” - What types of speech errors are these?
How about a "slip of the tongue", or - in some cases - a "Freudian slip" or a "parapraxis"...

comment Idiom: People caring about minor stuff while something terrible is happening
Is the "third hand" a legitimate expression as well, or am I missing some... innuendo?

comment Can you buy things “for cheap”?
@FumbleFingers: Talk is cheap! And, if something costs a pretty penny, don't pay an arm and a leg to get it!... drive a hard bargain! And so on... There are a great many idioms (and especially about money, prices and bargain).

You can buy something for a song (also a very nice expression). See idioms.thefreedictionary.com/for+a+song.
